Anna Sewell’s classic story Black Beauty has been adapted nine times for film and television, and later this month, Disney+ will do it again. The first trailer for the Black Beauty remake starring Mackenzie Foy (The Nutcracker and the Four Realms) and Iain Glen (Game of Thrones) has arrived, showcasing a modern reimagining of the familiar story. But this time, the titular horse is female and voiced by none other than Kate Winslet. Watch the Black Beauty remake trailer below. Read More »
It seems like DC Universe’s gritty take on Teen Titans has made its peace with Batman. Or at least, Brenton Thwaites’ Robin has in the upcoming season of Titans, which introduces the Caped Crusader as played by Game of Thrones‘ Iain Glen. But Glen’s Bruce Wayne isn’t the only new (or old?) face being introduced in Titans season 2. The Titans season 2 trailer follows the team welcoming new allies like Superboy (Joshua Orpin), Krypto, Jericho (Chella Man), and Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) as they unite against a familiar Big Bad, Deathstroke (Esai Morales).

Death came for a few key players in the final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones, but it turns out one character was initially supposed to live through the events of season eight and still be alive when the last episode’s credits rolled. Now Dave Hill, one of the show’s writers, has revealed the identity of that character, and the performer who embodied that character has responded.

The stellar sixth season of Game of Thrones helped provide a soft cushion for the news that followed that blood-soaked season finale: HBO’s flagship series was coming to an end, the seventh season would air later than usual, and the final two seasons would be shorter than the usual ten episodes. I’m a big fan of the “let the storytellers do what they need to do” approach to thinking and writing about popular culture, but that doesn’t make the extended wait for our final, abbreviated visit to Westeros feel any less unbearable.
But while the final seasons won’t have as many episodes as the others, a member of the show’s cast says that seasons six and seven may be a little longer than expected.

Principal photography on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is now underway in South Africa, and as we confirmed previously by way of returning cast member Ali Larter, this will be the final installment of the ongoing Resident Evil film franchise (though that doesn’t preclude a reboot from happening years from now).
And with shooting commencing across the globe, Screen Gems has announced the full cast for the film that will again be directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, who also wrote the screenplay for the video game sequel. We already know Milla Jovovich is back in the lead role as Alice (and we’ve seen a photo of her getting to work on set), but there’s a few other returning cast members too. Read More »

Now this is more like it. The first teaser we got for Season 2 of HBO’s Game of Thrones revealed absolutely nothing about the upcoming season, and though we’ve gotten some better looks since then — thanks to some behind-the-scenes production videos and a handful of set photos — it’s great to finally have a proper teaser with dramatic shots of the characters and landscapes to go with the requisite ominous voiceover.
Given that Season 2 will be based on A Clash of Kings, Book 2 of George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire series, it seems entirely appropriate that the narration in this teaser comes from one of the men determined to win the Iron Throne for himself: the brittle, humorless Stannis Baratheon, played by Stephen Dillane. Watch the trailer after the jump. (Warning: Major spoilers for Season 1/Book 1 ahead.)

Good morning — how about starting the day (and the week) with a little epic fantasy? Last night HBO aired a preview of the debut episode of Game of Thrones, which begins the herculean task of adapting the massive A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin. The full episode will air in two weeks, but for now you can watch the same preview HBO ran. The twelve-minute opening of the show is online, and embedded below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Briefly: Earlier today we saw some trailers and info on the new HBO offerings Mildred Pierce and The Sunset Limited. Now there’s a premiere date for Game of Thrones, the adaptation of George R.R. Martin‘s novels with a pilot directed by Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor). The show will debut Sunday, April 17.
Though I wasn’t knocked out by the trailer for this one I’m still on the hook, not so much because of the source material (which I know is the key factor for a great many fans) but because I’m so curious to see what Tom McCarthy and his cast have done with an adult fantasy setting. David Benioff and Dan Weiss are the lead writers and producers, and the cast includes Sean Bean, Peter Dinklage, Iain Glen, Lena Headey, Richard Madden and Sophie Turner. [EW]
The two teasers we’ve seen so far for the HBO series adaptation of George R.R. Martin‘s Game of Thrones showed very little. What we did see had the color bled out to fit the dour tone of each teaser, and while the brief images were tantalizing, there was no way to get a real sense of how the series might play. So this new trailer is the first finished footage we’ve seen to complement the colorful behind the scenes clips doled out sporadically over the past months. Check it out after the break. Read More »
